Nourishing the Soul: 

Fasting Insights and Lenten Fish Fry Convo Club


We welcome you to join Abrahamic House DC for our Shabbat Conversation Club – where we gather for a meal to discuss issues that matter.

This month we will be attending a community traditional Friday parish Fish Fry held at a local Church in the Washington, DC area.

Lent is a 40-day period of preparation for Easter, during which many Christians practice self-control through various types of fasting, including not eating meat on Fridays. Fasting is also common across different faiths, such as the Jewish Yom Kippur, the Muslim Ramadan and the Baháʼí Nineteen Day Fast.

This Lenten season we will share our insights, experiences, and wisdom on the practice of fasting and engage in meaningful conversations about the similarities and differences in each of our religious traditions.

Join us for an evening of reflection, community, and, of course, a delicious Shabbat meal. Let us nourish both body and soul as we explore our fasting journeys together.

These small discussions intentionally have a limited attendance to promote meaningful dialogue. If you would like to attend this event, please share a bit about your interest in the subject. We curate our discussions to prioritize a balance of perspectives and approaches. We will notify you by the Wednesday the week of the event if we can accommodate you.

Attendees will be responsible for paying for their own food at the Church hall, which should be less than $15.
